Psalm 32

Lent 4C

Most of his friends had been hanged.  But despite his central role in helping to construct Adolf Hitler’s Nazi nightmare, Albert Speer somehow managed to receive from the Nuremberg trials only a twenty-year sentence at the Spandau Prison in Berlin.  Not long after arriving in Spandau, Speer met with the prison chaplain.  To the chaplain’s…

Psalm 32:1-7

Proper 26C

Psalm 32 is one of the seven penitential Psalms in the Psalter.  Not surprisingly, the Revised Common Lectionary sees it as a perfect fit for the season of Lent.  Indeed, I wrote on Psalm 32 just a few months ago for the Fourth Sunday of Lent (cf. the entry for Feb. 29 in the Sermon…
